If you are a Facebook friend these are the same photos.

On the ferry seeing another ferry.

I wave at all ferrys!

Later down near Corner Brook following "Captain Cooks' trail" to the end at Lark Harbour.

(Have to figure out how to keep photos upright. Rotating and editing doesn't seem to work.)

St. John's, Newfoundland is a wonderful City! Pictures can't do it any justice but here are a few shots I liked:

We went on a boat trip to see Puffins. Interesting birds! I didn't get any good shots of them but did get some other birds plus the shoreline is crazy!

Also view from the Quidi Vidi Brewing Company.

After that we worked our way up to Gros Morne and took a scenic cruise there,. The scenery is beautiful and we also were fortunate enough to see a number of Bald Eagles. Unfortunately I didn't have my SLR and 300 mm lens so the eagle shots aren't the greatest. I think it's the first time I have seen Eagles in the wild.
